Punishment Protocols  

  • Punishments for breaking the rules will be broken into categories of Schedule 1 through Schedule 5, with a schedule 1 offenses being reserved for the most extreme cases.  

  • When referring to punishments, a offense will be followed by a call out from “Available Punishments” below. 

    • For example: A player shall not post nudity in the discord (Schedule 3) 

    • Any rule referring to a Schedule 3 means the league can choose any action from a Schedule 5 to a Schedule 3 from either “Chats Bans”, “Suspensions”, or a mix of both. 

  • League Administrators will make the determination based on the seriousness of the offense and action taken in past offenses similar in context. 

  • To ensure consistency or the appearance of bias, every offense will be logged and available to all players. 

  • The Log will have the players name, the offense, the punishment, and a statement from the league explaining it decision.  (Think Branden Shanahan as VP of Player Safety)
